6/10 Good

Emelisse Nature Resort is a Hotel that was probably amazing and fully deserving of their 5 stars 10 - 15 years ago. The rooms are nice but you can feel that a lot of it is old or not been serviced for a while. The pool area is fantastic and the view is great. The staff is very helpful sometimes a little too much but I had issues with the restaurant and especially the chef. None of the food plays up the to price tag that is set on it. You can make a steak look very pretty but you can't hide the fact it's overcooked and tasteless. On a personal note I have allergies and during the evening there are only 4 things on the menu that I could eat and the chef refused to try to change some things because the menu is the menu. Even with a menu of 50 items in the daytime that are completely off in the evening. This is the reason I would never pay to go back their again.

Great resort hotel.
Seaview room very nice. Pool area lovely with bar & restaurant overlooking the sea. Rooms large but only an uncomfortable day bed for extra person. Breakfast excellent. Area delightful and super restaurants nearby.

8/10 Very good

Housekeeping in rooms could be enhanced.
Couple with grown up daughter. Day bed was very uncomfortable for my daughter to sleep on so only really suitable for under 18's. We had an issue of broken shards of glass in the rush matting which my daughter stepped on and she had to pull out of her foot. We asked for enhanced cleaning which was executed that day. It is a lovely hotel and breakfast was excellent. Staff were very nice and we would stay at resort again as a couple.

The resort has an incredibly beautiful location and access to two fabulous swimming spots. Everyone in the restaurant is top notch. The front desk could use some improvement in efficiency and attitude, which could be more responsive and friendly. But we would come again.
